    I like what you did. The only criticism I have is the subtitles are OK for short lines but are not on long enough for an English speaking person to read them on any of the longer ones. It seems you have timed them to match the dialogue, but not long enough to be read. You may have to lengthen the time of some sequences in order to do that.

    I like the special effects, music, animation and dolls. I think the acting scenes were not as good as the rest.

    I use the Zoom R16 stand alone recorder to record audio on up to 8 tracks simultaneously. It can also be used as a DAW, connected to a computer, but I prefer to record on the memory card in the recorder and download my tracks to the computer when I am finished recording, as there is zero latency when listening to the recording on the recorder with headphones...

    You need some sound editing. The dialogue between the man and the girl, the sound level gets low at times, high at others. On the cuts you might want to fade the sound out and in rather than just go to a different loudness level.

    Well I can see you are a big David Lynch fan, and I'm glad you enjoy his work. And like you said people either like him or they don't. I believe it's a matter of taste, not knowledge. I've seen several of his films, Blue Velvet, Dune, Elephant Man, and now this short. I didn't get what you did from the short. I saw a kid intent on running somewhere, a distraught...

    OK then, what is the story in this short film, I don't see one at all. If there is no story what is the purpose of the short film? You didn't notice any shock value in Elephant Man or Blue Velvet? You don't see a notable differences between French films and Scandanavian fims and German films and American films? Do you see a difference between crepe suzettes and...

    To me this typefies the current crop of American made films, bizarre, no story, just shock value for it's own sake, or a bunch of sappy people exploring their own problems. I haven't seen a decent American dramatic film in a couple of years now, including award winning films. I watch foreign films on Netflix and enjoy them. There is a story that makes sense, and...

    This is a very slow setup. For editing I rcommend the following setup 3GHz Intel i7 processor, 16GB RAM, 2GB video card, 1TB 7800rpm hard drive, Windows10 64bit, and a 20" monitor. I got this setup used on ebay for about $400 a couple of years ago.

    bobspez replied to a topic Feedback please.. in Filmmakers
    Personally I don't care for a dark underexposed look in movies. It was used in the movie "The Last Picture Show" and to some extent in "McCabe and Mrs. Miller". Another thing a number of cuts are made before a jump or move is completed. This type of film would generally highlight the stunts rather than cut away before they are actually completed.

    bobspez replied to a topic Film camera in General Discussion
    It's not clear from your post if you want to shoot actual film (8mm or 16mm) or digital. There are many quality 16mm film movie cameras on ebay between $200 and $400, Zeiss, Bolex, etc. If you want to shoot 16mm film, 400ft. of color film (11 minutes) will cost about $400 for film and processing, while digital costs nothing. Also film movie cameras may or may...

    bobspez replied to a topic Explorer: London in Videos
    I think the camera work was very well done. I didn't care for the music, it overpowered the street sounds and views and became distracting. Your street sounds overlapped on several of the scenes so some of them seemed inauthentic as they came from another location. For example there was no banjo music with the banjo player. The main criticism I have of the video...

    Do you have any of your documentary or fictional videos online? You have asked so many questions asking for advice on this forum and rejected or ignored all of it. Have you actually done any documentary or fictional (movie) work?
